Experience of preparation for the 18th GC

May 8, 2018

In the Gospel reading of April 27, Jesus says: “I am the way, the life and the truth”.
For the prayer they gave us a picture of a door on a sheet of paper. 
When I looked at that picture, I did not want to enter that door, because beyond it there is security, comfort … I prefer the road, feeling freer, wider, more … what I want … but sometimes I have to enter that door to rest, pray, communicate, find …

As we attend this meeting for the preparation of the 18th GC, I feel that these six years have been a journey; now we need to have a special time, space in the heart to see, listen, recapture, renew … deeper.

And it is very important that we be united, sisters separated in different places and in varied circumstances; we are going to look for “the way, the life and the truth of Jesus” in entering that door. Our Father, who is inside, waits for us to give us much more life.

Many thanks to Maria Inez who has given me this opportunity to participate in the meeting for the preparation of the 18th GC, and also to help prepare the PC, “to work together putting our hearts into it” and continue asking ourselves:

What are you calling us to at this time, Lord?
What do you want us to do?
